Can anyone recommend a jeweler who would give me a fair price on an old Swiss watch?
Is anyone maintaining what used to be the YWCA pool at that campus on Wells? Is it open to the public?

Do any of the parks in Fort Wayne still have exercise trails in a decent state of repair? You know, like, pull-up bars and stuff...

This tree on Lake Avenue (in Lakeside) doesn't quite look like this yet - but it's close and it will look just like this any day now. It's Tammy's favorite autumn site when she comes back to visit and I can see why.

You really need to head down Lake Avenue (west from North Anthony, between Delta Blvd. and California Avenue) and check it out - you can't miss it!

I know that probably no one is going to see this because it has literally been over a year since I posted anything, but it's worth the effort.

I am starting a literary blog on LJ, and it is only for invited friends.  It will contain the ongoing content of a large historical fiction project I've been working on for almost two years.

If anyone on my friends list, or from any community who has read anything of mine they liked in the past, just reply to this post and let me know if you'd like access to the Literary Journal.  It is untitled yet, but within the day, the page, and its title, will be up for all to start checking out.  So, if you're interested, let me know so I can add you to the allowed readers list.

I hope to see many of you old familiar friends, and plenty of new ones!

I took the "two birds with one stone" approach this past week and headed down to the Dash-In one evening to check out the revamped downtown restaurant that Dustin Vice and his co-investors have taken over management of and to also attend a "meet-n-greet" with Joe Zimmerman, a photographer/artist who I've known for several years and just recently purchased a contemplative piece from:



The Dash-In at night is less frenzied than it is during urban lunchtime and design changes, specifically to the large, rear room, have eliminated a harsh, stark environment and have created a subtle, more welcoming atmosphere. Dustin is encouraged by the evening crowd and is optimistic that the Dash, which hasn't been open in the evenings for years, will benefit from a renewed interest in downtown Fort Wayne. If I lived downtown, I would probably be there a lot; it's atmosphere is conducive to conversations over coffee or beer and as Dustin will quickly -and proudly- point out, there's great food to be had there in the evenings, now!

There's interesting art there, also. In a style similar to Henry's monthly gallery displays, the walls were the stage for some definite 'conversation piece' works. This included Joe's work, which I might add, was selling at an appreciated pace.



Food, drink, music, art, words. Reliable ingredients for a good evening's recipe. You need to visit, or re-visit, The Dash-In. It's like an old friend in a new fall sweater.


Time is running out for cherry....whistle.....cricket.... and dozens of dogs in Dearborn County.

"We're so over crowed right now...we're at the point here, where somebody's going to have to be going," says Dearborn county animal shelter officer Lisa Harrison.

They need your help, and without it these big eyes and wagging tails will be gone forever...put to sleep. And shelter director Ann Averill says that's not what she wants.

"We really don't want to euthanize any of them if we can help it," Averill says.

But soon that won't be a choice and even this week some have already been put down. Recently the shelter saw a 30 percent increase in the dog population. Some picked up on the side of the road...others simply left outside.

"We find them tied to the trailer and just roaming around outside the shelter. Our numbers are defiantly up," Averill says

A new addition to the shelter is Venus. She is a yellow lab mix and was recently abandoned and needs a great home. "She is an excellent dog, she makes a great pet for any family, she seems to like kids...she's house broken," Harrison says

The process is fun and even easy on the wallet.

Adoption fees are just forty dollars. If the dog is not spayed or neutered, the shelter will pay for the procedure at one of the local veterinarians. Another perk, the shelter is running a special where they'll give you a brand new leader leash. You can even bring in your other pets for a meet and greet.

The shelter is also in need of all donations, including dog and cat food, litter, hay or straw for bedding and cash donations to help with medical expenses.
